Kenneth Gorelick began his career as a musician when he acquired his first ever professional job as
saxophone soloist for Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra in 1976 at the age of 20, when White was
impressed by his mastery of the blues scale. Kenny was also studying for a major in accounting at the
same time. After he graduated from the University of Washington he played with the funk band Cold,
Bold & Together before becoming a credited member of The Jeff Lorber Fusion. He began his solo
career after his period with Lorber.
In 1982, Kenny G signed with Arista Records as a solo artist, after label president Clive Davis heard his
rendition of ABBA's "Dancing Queen"
